Bullock and Fildes,1 in their monograph on hemophilia, gave a critical review of all reports in the literature dealing with the transmission of this disease. They supported the law promulgated by Nasse2 in 1820 that hemophilia was transmitted only through the female members of affected families but appeared only in the males.
